Coffee Table Project

Icky Icky Ucky Ucky. I grabbed this at a sale for 5$. Susie is becoming a college student (at EOU), a homeowner, and a landlord all in the same breath - so I've been hunting for furnishings at a bargain.

First I painted everything cream and then wiped on two different tones of golden brown. I used stamps to spell the different places/streets/towns near LaGrande, distressed it (of course), and then stained the entire coffee table. On the end table, I spelled out her address, but will not jeopardize her security due to questionable blog lurkers. Oooh - I love it, and I think it's a guaranteed original!
